​Now We Must Face Each Other

This song is by Simon Joyner and appears on the album Hotel Lives (2001).

Why must you turn everything beautiful ugly
And anything ugly so hideous?
Why would you put your freedom above me
When you know it leaves nothing between us?

Have you discovered a new discipline
At last within your reach?
Is your cure a bed and a woman
Or do you prefer to be bled by a leach?

Why would you trade your silver for brass tokens
And your tokens for cheap carnival rides?
Why would you leave a desire unspoken
When there are so many worthless things to hide?

Will you dissolve your new snowflake
On the tip of your yellow tongue
Or will she stumble out of a cake
To be eaten by your thumb?

Why must you always search for a vacancy
In every hotel life you brush up against?
Why must the faithless trumpet their decency
From a plateau of intolerance?

Will you ever tire of digesting the flesh
Long enough to investigate the soul?
Or are you like the amnesiac goldfish
Always surprised to find yourself in a bowl?
